Transforming lives through meaningful work and community partnership.

Meaningful Work Through Community Partnership

Welcome to the Jobs Ministry at West Haven, in partnership with Better Together. Our mission is to help job seekers in our community find meaningful work, and the primary way we do that is through our annual job fair.

The job fair is a community-wide event that brings together employers and job seekers in one place. We partner with Better Together to host the job fair, which features a wide range of employers from various industries. The event is designed to provide job seekers with access to a variety of job opportunities, as well as the chance to connect with employers and learn about different careers.

Our Jobs Ministry is open to everyone in our community, regardless of their background or beliefs. We believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to find meaningful work and contribute to society. Through our annual job fair and ongoing partnership with Better Together, we’re able to make a positive impact on the lives of job seekers in our community.

If you’re looking for employment or need career advice, we invite you to join us at our annual job fair. We look forward to helping you find your calling and succeed in your career.

What Makes a West Haven Job Fair Different?

The West Haven Job Fair, in partnership with Better Together, is not your average job fair! It’s a life-changing opportunity for individuals who are unemployed or under-employed; it is for individuals struggling to find their way toward full employment and dignity.

Here’s how it works: Before meeting with potential employers, job seekers will have access to a team of trained volunteers who provide personalized coaching, interview tips, resume assistance, and skills coaching to help them effectively showcase their abilities.

Further, employers who participate in the job fair are also coached in advance to ensure that they ask meaningful questions beyond standard work histories and are prepared to conduct live interviews. The goal is to fill open positions on the spot and make meaningful matches between job seekers and employers. There’s even an “Opportunity Bell” that candidates and hiring managers ring when they’ve found a match!

Through our partnership with Better Together, we’re able to offer job seekers a unique and personalized approach to finding employment. Our job fair is more than just a place to exchange resumes and business cards – it’s a community-driven effort to provide job seekers with the resources and support they need to succeed in their careers. We believe everyone deserves the opportunity to find meaningful work, and we’re dedicated to making that a reality through our West Haven Jobs Ministry.
